Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a potentially-life threatening sleep disorder. Get help today at Spearmint Dental.

Do you snore loudly and sometimes wake up in the middle of the night gasping or choking? Do you feel exhausted in the morning despite getting eight hours of sleep? See your doctor right away—you may have obstructive sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a condition that causes a person to stop breathing several times during sleep. If breathing stops multiple times during one sleep period, your brain and body are deprived of oxygen.

People with untreated sleep apnea often have accompanying health problems like:

  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Heart attack/heart failure
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke

Watch out for symptoms like loud snoring, waking up in the middle of the night gasping for air or choking, restless sleep, waking up in the morning with a headache or dry/sore throat and sleepiness during the day.

If you think you have sleep apnea, schedule a consultation with our Alberta dental office right away. Dr. Bhasin may prescribe diagnostic sleep apnea tests and sleep studies during comprehensive evaluation.
